European History

Here, in the French spirit of things, is a link to Le Monde.

You know, this is one advantage to being a European history grad student and not an American history grad student. Granted, they have to do less foreign language work, they can research much more easily, and their students are a lot more willing to study. But, I've talked to some of them, and its like this:

Me: So, it's great- this summer I'm going to the archives is Nantes and Paris. What about you?

Them: Yeah, I'm in the archives too. In Iowa... (sigh) Yep. Hanging out in Iowa...

Me: Yeah... Iowa... I'm sorry.
